Doctors Offer a New Option to Test for HPV

Ladies, pretty soon there will be a new option to test for cervical cancer.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the Human Papillomavirus D.N.A. test as a primary screening choice for women 25 or older.

For years the pap test was the only screening option for cervical cancer, but now doctors will use the new test together with the now-standard pap smear.
